"As cool as it is ingenious, the Cell Gunphone will give security officials even more to worry about. On the outside, it looks like any other cell phone, but lying beneath the exterior is a .22-caliber pistol that’s capable of firing four rounds in rapid succession. Twist the phone, load up the top half with .22-caliber bullets, and fire away using keys 5-8.

“We find it very, very alarming,” says Wolfgang Dicke of the German Police union. “It means police will have to draw their weapons whenever a person being checked reaches for their mobile phone.” "

Wonders never cease....

I'll refrain from making a German joke and just laugh at people in general now. What's next? lol

...that's the most retarded thing I've ever heard. A cell gun phone? Okay, yeah, it's sort of kickass, but the fact that you can't even tell it from a REGULAR phone makes the whole thing... so... DUMB.

Or smart. I mean... it's great concealment, but it sucks for any of us that don't feel like getting shot with said phone gun.

I saw a guy holding up a store yesterday with a Sidekick.
I knew it wouldn't be long until this technology reached the mainstream. :-/

You're kidding, right? I mean... That can't be serious.

I can picture a telemarketer saying:
"Now, you can own your very own printer-scanner-copier-fax machine-foot massage-flashlight-television-MP3 player-camera-gun-phone!"

I say, on a side note, the cell-phones are getting ridiculous, with all their features that are not related to "phone" use. I know this one is not really a phone, though, right? Just a gun that looks like a phone, but you clearly cannot get or make calls with it...

I don't know. It wasn't really clear in the article.

And I wish I was kidding.

Please, God, someone find a snopes to discount this.

Great for spies

but they already have enough toys that kill.

I found a flask that looks like a cell phone :) For use at concerts where alcohol is not permitted was the advertisement :) I almost bought it.
